What are the best tools or software to measure online growth?
There are several tools and software available that can help law firms measure their online growth effectively. These tools provide valuable insights and data that can be used to track different aspects of a law firm’s digital efforts. Here are some of the best tools and software that can be used for this purpose:
Google Analytics: This is a free and powerful tool that can provide you with detailed insights about your website’s traffic, including where your traffic comes from, what pages they land on, and how long they stick around on your site.
SEMrush: SEMrush is a great tool for monitoring your website’s rankings in search engines, and more specifically, the Search Engine Results Page (SERP), analyzing your competitors’ SEO methods and finding new opportunities to rank above them. It also has features for social media monitoring and content analysis.
SEOMoz: Ideal for optimizing your online presence, SEOMoz offers a complete suite of SEO tools. You can track your rankings, do keyword research, and analyze your site’s SEO performance. It’s an essential tool for measuring your law firm’s digital efforts.
These are some of the best-known tools and probably the most common places to start. They’ve been around for a long time, and have the best chances of having more resources to help you along the way if you get lost.
We do, however, recommend giving us a call if you’re looking to implement and make real actionable changes based on your analytics audit.
Measuring your law firm’s digital efforts can be an intricate but rewarding process: It provides insights into your current strategy and opens room for fine-tuning and growth. Using tools such as Google Analytics and SEMrush ensures detailed oversight of your online presence and helps rally your firm’s overall online engagement and conversions.
